Britain finally decided to follow America and vote for Independence. It took them 240 years to catch up. So, there’s no need to start rushing things now. Angela Merkel and George Osborne (Trump’s lookalike and the likely next British PM) both seem to feel the same way.
The fundamental difference between the European Union and the Union of States in American is the heart bond. Americans arrived united after leaving Europe because it was already divided. Freedom and independence are spreading their call to the human heart around the world, even in the face of centralism, and has now made the way backward, across the Atlantic. Exiting Europe 240 years ago, to become independent, lit a beacon that inspired the old world of tyranny to follow suit. The “brexit” vote teaches us that the best way to lead others it to lead one’s self.
As if the Brexit vote was not sufficient warning, and as if the 240th anniversary of American independence is not a sufficient reminder, some government entities in America, by no means all, seem to be giving American States their own reasons for independence. The Obama DOJ scandals in the cover-ups of a terrorist attack 911 tape demonstrate that getting to the truth is not the top priority in that particular investigation. Hawaii considers people who obey the law to be dangerous, having voted to place registered gun owners on the FBI watch list. Yet, illegal immigrants “in the shadows” receive special protection under Obama, but not as much as he would like. The courts shut down his executive order on immigration. Obama responded with his usual pattern of lecturing and condescending, as if Americans haven’t been insulted enough already during a month when “independence” makes headlines.
After the brexit vote, Obama said that the relationship between the US an the UK would not change, while before the vote, he warned that a brexit would change the relationship.
Obama also addressed an entrepreneurship summit where he praised the successes of the non-government sector, highlighting government investment projects. He spoke elaborately on things that don’t appear in his portfolio before inserting his political talking points, then climaxing on immigration, diversity, globalism, and government backing. Based on his examples, Obama’s definition of an “entrepreneur” seems to be someone controlled, promoted, and funded by government. He started his speech by saying it is fortunate that he can’t stay longer than his term limit.
Trump finally aimed all barrels at the Clinton’s. The Clinton v Trump polls can now calculate reality rather than speculation. Remember, Obama campaigned against a lame-duck, Bush, which surmounted to successful demagoguery. By contrast, Trump is legitimately campaigning against Obama by proxy through Hillary. Had she not been Secretary of State, that wouldn’t be possible. Trump also campaigns against Bill Clinton by proxy of Hillary. Hillary’s career is an undisguised gift to the Trump campaign.
While it has been said that Churchill was magnificent in defeat and insufferable in victory, Obama is lecturing and condescending in both, though his victories, few and far between, arguably don’t last. As with Bush to Obama, without eight years of Obama, Trump would not be electable. Obama might be more successful in whatever his goals may be if he understood one basic principle: It is easier to win when you want to.
